the fiscal cliff. what does that mean? every single american who pays income taxes will see a tax increase go into effect. we also know there will be a massive sequester. we just evaded the rule on the national defense authorization act, it will have a devastating impact on our national security. increasing taxes on working americans will create a scenario which will hinge on our ability to encourage the kind of domestic product growth that is important for us and for our economic security and overall national security. i think about my former california colleague, please, do what you can to ensure we do not have the sequester take effect. do what you can, and try to make sure hamas you address it and have what is necessary for our national security. as the look at these issues, we are going through a troubling time. we have a divided government. we have a democratic president and a republican house of representatives. i happen to believe that creates an opportunity. i did not vote for barack obama, but i do believe that having a president in one party and a house in another party does create

is the inevitable that we go over the fiscal cliff. true, it was asking the house republicans to vote for a tax increase. but it was -- they got some cover from grower and others and i think it was a political exercise more so than anythings and it had enabled the work, it would have changed the scenario. >> governor, you know first-hand the politics of raising taxes. what did you make of all this? >> i almost felt sorry for speaker boehner. being torn apart by his own caucus. i'm enthusiastic about them passing anything. tax bills have to start in the house. the senate can take whatever vehicle they send over and substitute for it something that makes sense and have it sent back and it's on them to say yes or no as to whether we go over the cliff. that's really the approach. >> so you want to see something come out of the house? >> anything. anything. and you substitute the total bill. but it has to come out of the house and that's the rationale for getting something there. >> they actually did get something out of the house early last week. they stopped the defense sequester and that's all th
